Celebrating Bukowski’s Birthday With R. Crumb’s Illustrations of His Books

This past Saturday was Charles Bukowski’s birthday. The celebrated poet and novelist would have been 94 on that day, August 16th. What better way to honor the larger-than-life writer’s birthday than to feature larger-than-life artist Robert Crumb’s illustrations of Bukowski books Bring Me Your Love and There’s No Business, as well as a 1998 posthumously published collection of his journals, entitled The Captain is Out to Lunch.
